This antiquarian book contains D. H. Lawrence’s 1920 novel, "The Lost Girl". It tells the story of Alvina Houghton, the daughter of a draper who comes of age as her father’s business begins to fail. Her father, in a desperate attempt to regain his wealth and ensure his daughter’s correct upbringing, purchases a theatre. Alvina, however, becomes infatuated with a travelling Italian performer called Ciccio, and the two of them flee to Naples to embrace a new life that brings with it freedom, desire, and Avlina’s sexual awakening. David Herbert Richards Lawrence (1885 - 1930) was a seminal English novelist, poet, playwright, and essayist - one of the greats of English literature. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
